Not what I envisioned.

Naively thought I was going to make a difference and help I've read in other's your coworkers that make CPS an ok place to work. Yes the pay and benefits are great...but your soul withers away it just isn't enough. The job itself isn't overly stressful. It is the BS from the upper management that ultimately will kill it for you.

Fulfilling, Exciting, Educational and helps you grow personally

Fulfilling and exciting place to work. Very rarely were you bored . Everyday was a learning experience. Helped you to open your mind and look beyond the obvious. Made you think outside the box and solve problems. A typical day went from being busy doing paperwork to high speed pursuits and volatile situations. I learned to be open and a good listener. I learned to filter through things to get to the truth of a matter. Management only came into the picture in the most extreme circumstances and allowed you to think for yourself. The workplace is something only those who work there would understand as it is personal to all outsiders, but open to those inside. The hardest part of the job is the political aspects. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction garnered from helping others.


Freedom to act on your own initiative. Benefits and family atmosphere within.
